When it comes to participating in an activity or sport, dressing the part can give you an extra boost of confidence, regardless of your athleticism. If you’re thinking about taking up cycling or are already a pro, Rapha—the London-based outfitters of fine cycling clothing and acessories—the go-to brand for beginners to World Tour professionals, has you covered. Literally.
Rapha also provides a community gathering for cyclist enthusiasts, and even the Rapha Cycling Club, which has 12,000 members worldwide. Committed to enhancing the Miami cycling community, Rapha hosted “Factor Night” earlier this month at its Design District location. On hand for the evening was Rob Gitelis, a Miami-native, and founder of Factor Bikes who spoke to guests about how he started the bike company and why he prefers to keep the brand low profile, despite the fact that they sponsor Professional cycling teams throughout the Tour De France and other worldwide cycling events.
Factor’s sleek carbon frame with integrated components coupled with aerodynamics and clean lines not only make them some of the fastest bikes on the market, but also the most stylish—the perfect ride to for those wearing Rapha. Guests had the opportunity to mix, mingle and shop during the event.
For those interested in learning more about cycling or are looking to meet other fit-minded Miamians, Rapha is hosting their next event on August 24, 2019 from 6pm to 8pm, which will feature "Melody Farms", a Miami based local Colombian cycling team, so get yourself in gear and mark your calendar.
